Ive got all three of em, and I think they're sweet. Like, really. Why were they sealed up? they must have been too powerful I suppose. Meh.

Anyways, doesnt anyone find it creepy that regirock is animated boulders with eyes, regice just made of ice, and registeel being hollow and all? They need no organs to live...and they literally have no hearts...or brains...They're creepy in a way, and i like that... :twisted: :twisted:

They Inspired me. At first I didn't like Pokemon. Then my friends looked at a magizine. I saw the Regis. I said they look cool. then I bought Ruby to catch them and that is why I like them so much.

Not really, because it would make sense that Regice is made of ice, etc. :roll:

I love the Regi's, and how they look etc. But I hate how hard they are to catch, i've never been able to catch one, That's how annoying it is, even when they're asleep with 2hp and I use 10 Ultra Balls, nothing works.

So annoying, I dont hate them, I just geta nnoyed with them.

I really like the legendary trios- all the ones so far really appeal to me. Even the RSE main trio are starting to appeal to me.

But the Regis.. just kinda leave me cold. I like humanshape Pokemon, like Jynx and Gardevoir. I like steel, robotic looking Pokemon, like Skarmory and Aron.
But there's something about the Regis that actually kinda creeps me out, and I think its because they try to be Pokemon and emulate life but they look so inanimate to me. I think its something to do with the Uncanny Valley (go see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Uncanny_valley for more info about that)

I can't speak about stat-wise cus I haven't caught them yet, but looks wise, theyre quite scary. Also, the whole long-winded process puts me off- its a lot of effort to go to for three Pokemon I don't really fancy having..

Firstly, they're ugly (Okay, okay. Maybe Nintendo could have just put a bit more effort into its design?)).

Secondly, they're a pain to catch.

Thirdly, after wasting more then a hundred pokeballs on it while it had 1 HP and was asleep and HAVING TO RESTART MULTIPLE TIMES, wouldn't you just want to box it and never look at it again?

They can get some pretty decent attacks, but they are horrible attack poke'mon. They are pretty much stuck as being tanks and there are already wayyyy better ones out there.

{regice} {regirock} and {registeel} are my favorite trio of pokemon. The people who said, Nintendo was not putting much effert in make the Regis, are wrong. As Krisp said, they are Golems. Which are Human-shaped creatures made from inatimite material. Most stories of golems are rock creatures, which is wrong, since some stories have it that some golems were made of ice and steel not just rock. So Nintendo created them of those kinds of golems. This trio is more unquie compared to the other trios. And they have better moves to choose since the bird trio has few good moves to choose. One of my best pokemon is my {regice} and it won the cool contest, and {regirock} won the tough contest.

The main reason I don't use them is because their movepools kinda suck, and I don't believe they look half bad, especially {regice} and {registeel}

Great minds think alike. :P
I don't like them because of the reason above, and that they have fairly small movepools, the fact that they have fairly small attack/SA, and that they can only Tank well, which is a strategy I don't like.

I dislike them rather a lot because one has to go through all of this capturing of Relicanth, Wailord, and teaching of Dig and all that effort in order to get three difficult to capture, moronic...things that have the worst stats in the game! (Perhaps not as bad as Caterpie or Sunkern :) )
Okay, that's my view about them!

Why are people complaining so much about their stats and attacks!?

Regirock's stats wrote:
HP 80
Attack 100
Defense 200
Speed 50
Spec. Attack 50
Spec. Defense 100

So its Speed and Special Attack suck...So what? It doesn't need them, it has a good physical movepool.
Regice's stats wrote:
HP 80
Attack 50
Defense 100
Speed 50
Spec. Attack 100
Spec. Defense 200

Similar case with Regice. It doesn't need Attack and Speed at all.
Registeel's stats wrote:
HP 80
Attack 75
Defense 150
Speed 50
Spec. Attack 75
Spec. Defense 150

This guy is one of the greatest mixed tanks in history AND he can actually cause damage unlike Umbreon or Shuckle...

These guys are awesome beasts when used right.

Gosh! I didn't realise that Regice's Special Defence was so high! But then again, all three of them can be taken down with just one pokemon (if their EVs have been distributed properly.

{Blaziken} Blaziken, as his Sky Uppercut is Super effective against the three of them (thus rednering Regice's Sp. Def useless.)

{Medicham} Medicham, if it uses the Ice Punch for Regirock, and Fire Punch for the other too (This will become even more effective with Diamond and Pearl as the attacks will become physical thus benefitting from Medicham's high attack (I think))

and...

Any strong Earth Quaker - It is good against Regis rock and steel and Ice cube man is far too brittle to take a hit from a stabbed, EVed Earthquake.

To all the above - I think... I'm not 100% positive.
